marketplace. you don't have to have the government mandate that for that to occur. but let's go to something that we agree on. the key task we have in health care is to get the costs down, so it's more affordable for families and then he has as a model for that doing that, a board of people at the government, an unelected, apointed board who are going to decide what kind of treatment you ought to have. in my opinion, the government is not effective in... in bringing down the cost of almost anything. as a matter of fact, free people and free enterprises, trying to find ways to do things better are able to be more effective than the government will ever be. your example of the cleveland clinic is my case in point, along with several others i could describe. this is the private market. these are enterprises competing with each other, learning how to do better jobs. i used to consult hospitals and to health care providers. i was astonished at the creativity and innovation that exists in the american people. in other words to bring the cost of health care down, we don't need a board of 15 people
in state government debts as well. now my final number: $50,000 is the median household income. so, we owe $12,000 more than we make. that means as a nation what we owe now exceeds what we have. that also means even if you confiscate all that we make every penny of its you would not come close to covering what we spend, any of it. that is the issue the guys should be hammering tomorrow night, how vulnerable we are. the guy would lays it out would not just be reframing the debate but setting off a firestorm. but one that need not concern him or us. as the fine of the mind in both political parties have told me, and, yes, there are still quite a few, to quote a certain vice presidential candidate, we can do this. listen to two guys on my fox business network show, which if you don't get you should demand, last night, retired democratic senator sam nunn and former republican senator bob bennett appears jointly on fox business network. each offering relatively modest proposals to fix this mess. listen closely. >> we particularly have to discuss, frankly, with the american people, that the enti
parts of a speech that have never been seen, in the unedited video. he accuses the u.s. government of short-changing hurricane katrina victims. why? then senator obama says it's incompetence and then implies racism. he was speak to go an odd yins of african-american ministers at the virginia hampton university. tick a look. >> down in new orleans, where they still have not rebuilt 20 months later, there is a federal law when you get reconstruction money from the federal government, called the stafford act. and basically, it says, when you get federal money, have you to give a 10% match. the local government's got to come up with 10%. every $10 the federal government comes up with, the local government's got to give a dollar. now, here's the thing. when 9/11 happened in new york city, they waived the stafford act. said this is too serious a problem, we can't expect new york city to rebuild on its own. forget that dollar have you to put in. here's $10. that was the right thing to do. when hurricane andrew struck in florida, people said, look at this devastation. we don't expect to yo
candidate obama veers off from his prepared remarks and accuses the u.s. government of short-changing hurricane katrina victims in new orleans. >> what's happening down in new orleans? where's your dollar? where's your stafford act mony? makes no sense. tells me the bullet hasn't been taken out. tells me that somehow the people down in new orleans, they don't care about as much. >> greta: and now, former vice-presidential candidate, sarah palin, posting her response on facebook to the video. many of you have seen theuent 07 speech in which then senator obama suggested that because of racism, the federal government didn't waive the stafford act to assist new orleans after katrina. 10 days before senator obama gave this speech, the federal government did in fact waive the stafford act for new orleans. and to add insult to injury, barack obama was one of 14 senators who voted against the bill that, included the provision to give supplemental emergency assistance to new orleans of he was being dishonest and divisive, which we have seen far too often from him in the last four year
be that the government is encouraging them not to. it could be that that they just have concluded that they would make such a presence if they went in, that they could become a sizable target. i just don't know. i think it's unfortunate that they've not been able to get into the crime scene. >> greta: you know, i've always been on the outside. it's very different on the outside than the inside. i'm curious if you have any sort of thought why the administration went out with the youtube video theory to begin with, because on the outside, it's 9/11, it's americans in a hostile environment, and on our territory, a consulate in libya, yet they went out with the youtube and they stuck with it for so many days. you know, even without the ability of intelligence, i would have at least couched it differently. >> well, you're quite right. they made a terrible mistake. i think what they did was, you know, hope springs eternal. they wanted it to be the youtube and they -- it was much more convenient from the administration's standpoint to have it be the film that nobody's seen. and yet it demonstrated such serio
will continue to provide health care. the social contract has changed now that the government is involved. some math, our average cost for employee last year was roughly $10,000 and that's going up to roughly $12,000. so the economics are straight forward. if we move to everybody off the company plan and moved to the exchanges, we would save $1 million a year, extrapolate that to a thousand employees -- >> greta: but the problem with it is that, even if you would like to keep them publicly owned company, even if you would like to keep them and on and pay that, if you are publicly honed, you have a fiduciary duty not to squander the mon i, that's a problem. >> have you one or two rough quarter, advertising and marking are the first to be cut. now it will be health care, going forward. mckenzie does did a study that estimated that 30% of companies, when asked, were considering moving people backs to the exchanges. so there is 150 million americans that receive health care from their employer. imagine 50 million people dumped on the exchanges. >> greta: let me get this -- let me ask you. 19% next
. this is part of making sure middle class families are secure in this country. >> the federal government taking over health care and whisking aside the 10th amendment is not the course for america to have a stronger economy. >> right now, you can take a deduction for moving a plan overseas. i think most americans would say that doesn't make sense and that raises revenue. >> i've been in business ta years. i have no idea what you're talking about. i maybe need to get a new accountant but the idea you get a break for shipping jobs overseas is not the case. mr. president you're entitled to your own house and airplane but not your own facts. >> 1 months you've been running on this tax plan. now, you're saying big bold idea is never mind. the fact is that if you're lowering the rates the way you describe, governor, then... it is not possible to come up with enough deductions only affect high income individuals to avoid either raising deficit or burdening the middle class. does anyone out there think that the big problem we had is that there is too much oversight and regulation of wall street? becaus
